How Old is My Pet in Human Years?



Nashville pet owners, as your dog and cat ages - their healthcare needs become greater.  Since pets age at a faster rate than humans, Southside Animal Hospital recommends an exam every six months after your pet reaches age 7 in order to ensure your older pet is happy, healthy and pain-free.



Good senior pet health care requires attention to several factors:





Regular Preventative Care Exams are Important for Senior Pets



Regular exams and testing allows us to determine what is normal for your pet. Knowing these results help us detect any abnormalities or problems early. When diagnosed early, many conditions can be successfully managed leading to better outcomes for your pet and treatment costs can often be reduced.



Southside Animal Hospital has developed a comprehensive senior wellness program designed to meet the changing needs of your pet as he or she ages. Our senior wellness program includes:




  • Complete physical exam - evaluates the heart, lungs, eyes, ears, abdomen, joints and skin

  • Intestinal parasite exam – Check for worms

  • Early Disease Detection Testing:

    • Urinalysis – detects ph balance, crystals in urine, abnormal cells and any signs of urinary tract infection or bladder cancer

    • Full biochemisty test and bloodwork – evaluates the liver, kidneys thyroid levels, blood sugar levels, white blood cell count, red blood cell count and platelet count.



  • Ocular pressure check

  • Blood pressure check



*We may also recommend further diagnostics based on exam and test results.
